A thorough rug cleaning will add years to a rug's life, and a rug cleaning will make a rug smell and feel good too. But all these reasons don't compare to the main reason rug cleaning is pursued, and this is to make a rug sanitary. Often, when homeowners think about the fixtures in their homes that hold germs and other unwanted particles, the rug is not one that comes to mind quickly. Most people think of toilets, door knobs, and other things that require hand use frequently, but in fact a rug can be a dangerous fixture if it's not taken care of properly.

Routine vacuuming won't be enough, and this is why professional rug cleaning is needed.

The first thing we’ll do is assess the colorfastness of your rug. This is done before cleaning takes place. When it comes to cleaning antique rugs, preparation is very important. We’ll also remove whatever loose fibers, dirt, grit, and debris we can before cleaning, as these particles can be more damaging when wet.
Next is the gentle washing phase. We’ll take extra care, as we know a wet rug can get damaged easily. We’ll only use cleaning products that are designed for vintage rugs, and we’ll refrain from doing any vigorous scrubbing. Once cleaning is over, we’ll let your rug dry out naturally, as this is the best drying method for vintage rugs.
